Service Description

INDEXES AND TABLES: Let me help your readers find the information they seek by crafting a thorough and easy-to-use index or table for your print or electronic publication. I use state-of-the-art indexing software and have created subject, name, and authority indexes for hundreds of publications, ranging from legal books to academic tomes to news journals.

EDITORIAL: Need your work sharpened up? I can enhance readability of your copy by editing for organization and presentation, grammar, word usage, and spelling. Chicago, AP, or Bluebook styles followed, as required.

LEGAL RESEARCH/CITE VERIFICATION: Need to make sure the cites in your brief or publication are accurate? I use Westlaw to research case cites to verify names, citation in primary and secondary reporters (following Bluebook style), and direct and indirect actions that may affect the holding of the case. Statute and regulatory cite verification is available as well.
